Normally, you would create a mission statement first. Most organizations or companies create a mission statement, then a vision statement to measure how well they are doing the intentions of the stated mission.

The proper business definition of a mission statement is: A written explanation of an organization's intentions and aims.

It is in effect, an enduring statement of what our purpose is, the scope of our "operations", who we seek serve, and why we are different from other like minded organizations.

Some organizations have a long mission statement, while others have a short and simple one. I've seen some that were a page long, and one that was one sentence (It was an investment firm: "To build wealth for our clients"). Walgreens is a good sized paragraph in length.[/factoid over]

Hmmmm, perhaps NightCloak you should head up the Mission and Vision project, just a suggestion though.
Anybody with ideas as to what should go into the mission statement should post it here (or later, a designated thread.).

Regarding the rule on novel discussion...

Nay

Frankly, I don't have anything negative toward novels. It's just that I use gaming forums for gaming advice, and when I want to know about novels, I go somewhere else. Besides, I'm playing the devil's advocate on this one.

One thing that I envision for the GMF if the production of community books from the advice and ideas discussed here in the GMF. Just as with the Cooperative Dungeons lead by ENWorld user Trainz, we could do the same and make the PDFs available in RPGNow or here at ENWorld. That, however, is a long-term plan.

I agree. One vote of Nay
for me.

I'd be happy to put something together, assuming no one else minds me handling the project (I could use a few days off from the work I've been doing for the notebook thread, so I don't mind).

A few questions first:

1. Should I just post a number of working ideas that can be discussed and debated? Or should I work up a draft and let the draft itself be debated?

Option one allows for more community involvement but suffers from the time to debate and organize the collected thoughts into a whole. Option two would be quicker (assuming you don't completely toss out what I write up :p ) but suffers from a little less community debate and input due to whatever I write up being the starting point.

Both are valid options, It just depends on what everyone else wants. Don't want to be steppin' on anyones toes :)

2. Should I start a new thread for this? And if I do, should we get the input of all current members who wish to participate?

Mission Statement

Nightcloak, I believe we can trust you to write it. Then post it here, it may or may not be revised as nessecary. Once it is done I suggest we submit it to the people and let them offer suggestions. That's my suggestion on how to handle the mission statement.

I got another issue for the Council:

Should we maintain or eliminate the password requirement for this site?

I say: Aye.... (or Arrgh)

(I'm waiting on this decision so I can email Morrus with the final answer, and to ask him to give the Council moderator privileges).

I think that the 7th proposition has been voted in the old thread:

A password to just access the DMF? Personally, I'd prefer to not use one.

Nightcloak said:
I agree. We want things to be open and easy.

Even Mordmorgan the Mad said:
Anyhow, I'd vote for a greater dispel password.

And now Xen voted in favor. That makes 5 votes (mine included) already cast.
So I'll drop an email to Morrus, and make a signup thread. If anyone has an important objection, then inform me ASAP, or otherwise I'll continue with the email for password removal.

To what purpose does losing the password serve? I must vote a strong Nay on this. All we do is risk allowing non-members who don't udnerstand the GMF hijack the thread. I am STRONGLY against removing the password.

After a bit of discussion with Xen I now see why we should not have a password hwoever I suggest this:

When we remove the password is when we should make the counselors mods so that we can remove hijaking threads/posts.

What says the council? (Which is spelled correctly thank you)
 

Y.O.Morales

First Post
Exactly, ChaosEvoker. That is entirely essential.

I'll drop the email now and hope (me crosses fingers) that he'll read it tomorrow and make changes accordingly.

(P.D. I just purchased a community supporter account and is super cool. The Search feature is doubtless a must-have, and while viewing the Who's Online feature, I knew that Xen and Chaos were replying to this thread at the same time as I. Plus the private-messaging is also cool).

I agree with CE on this. The password should not be removed until the counsil is made moderators.

I also propose that a short list of rules be made to govern the use of a council members Moderator power.

If this proposition (#8) is passed I submit this rough draft of rules:
1. Posts should only be deleted if they are done to: derail a thread completly, insult or abuse a member of the GMF, or is posted by a non member of the GMF who has not already asked to join if the post is not on subject with the threads purpose.
2. Threads should only be deleted if they are designed to: insult or abuse a member of the GMF, or is created by a non member of the GMF who has not already asked to join. A Council Member must explain why he has deleted a thread at the Rules, Propositions, and Council Member Thread.
3. A Council Member may not use his authority as a Moderator to bully or "boss around" other members of the GMF.
